By the creation of European Union Battle Groups, EU created itself fast and agile response force for conducting humanitarian & peacekeeping missions. At May 2004 EU defence ministers agreed that six or seven such groups ought to be ready for operation by the year 2007. Some people feel EU Crisis Management operations as important for making the world a better, more stable place for us all whereas others feel that these operations are just a waste of money and possibly, valuable human lives.

What's your stance on EU crisis management operations? Is there too much cooperation in military matters at EU already?

"We should execute them only at European soil"

We should focus on our selfs instead of focusing on everybody else. there are people within the union that already have a hard time etc. Spend those money on those people instead of spending money on some far off country that we know nothing about and that most likely wouldn't have helped us if we needed the help.

I think the concept of multinational intervention-troops is a good one. We already have the UN for such things, but it is likely that the EU will come to an agreement sooner than the UN.

I think we need more of EU crisis management operations as there are so many places where these would be needed and the UN is too ineffective to carry out these. More secure & stable world brings more security & stability for Europe too as reflection effects aren't only regional anymore, but global. Furthermore, I feel that it's our duty to help weaker countries to get on their feet again: there are problems in third world countries that are directly or indirectly caused by European major powers.

The amount of military cooperation should be extended to security guarantees between the memberstates as is the case in Nato. After that, no further military cooperation is needed.

True, the question is though, why our generation has to be sent out and risk our lives for something our forefathers did? The generations today has nothing to do with the third worlds misery.

So why do you have no problem with living in the wealth that your forefathers created?

Let's make one thing clear. I don't have any bad conscience for something they have done. I live here and this is the way I know. Should I be ashamed that I live in wealth while some people don't?

Because some generation eventually has to do it if we want to make the right thing and this issue must not be postponed any longer. It's humanitarian to help weaker nations and that way we reduce poverty, immigration & illegal immigrants and terrorism in the world. Like said: reflection effects aren't only regional anymore, but global as the war in Iraq has shown.

Strange how other people don't have any opinion in such an important issue as EU crisis management.
